Ulf Linde was an art critic, museum director and jazz musician, born in Stockholm in 1929 and died in 2013. He authored the second version of the Grand Verre by Marcel Duchamp prepared in 1961 at the request of Pontus Hulten for the “Art in Motion” exhibition held at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. Ulf Linde devoted nearly 40 years of his life to research on the work by Duchamp. Though he had never seen the original, he worked on creating a copy of the “grand verre”. His work, much more than a simple replica, is above all his understanding and his interpretation of one of the masterpieces of the 20th century. His work was later acknowledged by Marcel Duchamp who signed it “pour copie conforme”.
Artist Franck Scurti's film is built around an interview between Ulf Linde and art historian Hans Maria De Wolf.
